DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (AFP) - Thousands of Kurds gathered Thursday in Turkey’s southeastern city of Diyarbakir for the funeral of three female Kurdish activists shot dead in Paris last week. The growing crowd of participants, including women adorned in white scarves, a symbol of peace, marched in a funeral procession many fear could turn into a violent protest. A massive convoy followed on foot the hearses carrying the coffins, which were then hoisted onto platforms in a square on the outskirts of the city. Tens of thousands more were expected to pour into the city during the day to pay homage to the victims.
